The City of Sandy Springs has implemented a new format to disseminate information about the city government. On a regular basis they will hold a open house so that the public can come to one place and get a bunch of info about their community in one central location. This is in contrast to having to visit many different meeting for each individual issue. The next one is on March 10, 2008. See the press release for more details.

March 4, 2008— The City of Sandy Springs and its staff will be presenting information at their monthly City Open House on March 10 from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m. The meeting will be held at the Mt. Vernon High School (Glenn Campus) located at 510 Mt. Vernon Highway, NE. 

The public is encouraged to attend the open house, which will focus on numerous topics. The topics presented at each individual station range from the Police (COMPSTAT) station to the Recreation and Parks station. In all, there will be nearly 15 stations set up for the public to view and ask questions about. Inparticular, the three transportation related projects being presented are the Phase I portion of the Sandy Springs Circle and Hammond Drive Pedestrian Enhancements, the Roswell Road Streetscapes and theRiver Valley Road Sidewalks project. 

There will be no formal presentation, but there will be an opportunity for the public to comment on what the City has presented. The Sandy Springs Fire and Rescue will have one of their Fire Engines on display, as well as, their new Fire Safety House which was given to the City in early February. The Fire Safety House is a fully interactive experience that will be utilized to teach children about such things as fire safety, kitchen safety, bike safety, seatbelt safety and storm preparedness.
